questions/issue with dtoverlay=vc4-kms-v3d

Postby 2sdude » Tue Jan 18, 2022 2:50 pm

I have an RPI3B.
I believe that only after the kernel naming change (to rpi(-legacy)) my boot/config.txt included:

Code: Select all

At any rate, (whether the line was present prior to the naming change or not) my RPI 7inch screen printed the boot messages and subsequently faded, started shaking, became unreadable.

I further spotted the following in the logs (NOTE "Cannot find any crtc or sizes"):

Code: Select all
[   11.978870] fb0: switching to vc4drmfb from simple
[   12.048494] vc4-drm soc:gpu: bound 3f400000.hvs (ops vc4_hvs_ops [vc4])

[   22.888678] vc4-drm soc:gpu: [drm] Cannot find any crtc or sizes

I found two fixes:
- use fake kms, change the line to: dtoverlay=vc4-fkms-v3d
- remove the line, seems my RPI3B use case doesn't require use of kms

- would I need kms for running X server only? (anybody have a link that would help me understand the various cmdline.txt and boot.txt parameters?)
- do I need to set a screen size in /boot/cmdline.txt? Or using another parameter?

You might want to ask this on the official rpi forum if you cannot find the answer here:
